What amazes me about Giovanni is his incredible quest for perfection in cuts, volume and his sculptural approach to his clothes that makes them architectural.
The overlapping of fine fabrics now technical, details which characterize, contaminate and give new life to a classic that strikes us at first glance.
One reads his poetry!
Soft, sensuous, romantic … feminine, yet so modern and cosmopolitan that the thought brings me to the greatest of great couturiers like Alaia.
An emotionally interesting experience!
Giovanni is pure talent, he won the National Chamber of Italian Fashion award with the men’s collection “On Stage 2010″, but not only, because at the same time he was inserted into VOGUE Talents with the women’s collection.
The amazing eighteenth century- inspired bustier and wide-sleeved silk shirts remind us of courts from the past … all so retro, all so ultra-modern.
I think that the alchemy created by Giovanni Grillotti, is held in the clear choice of taking references from past couture cuts, drapes, revisiting them and reinventing the fit of his clothes (which become very slim) and at the same time integrating them into a visionary and fascinating future.
A woman beautifully dressed in petals and colored in
yellow-billed duck, golden rod, sandy brown, intense blue, tan.
Beautiful and whimsical as a “Sterlizia” … a strong and beautiful woman… like a Japanese warrior with her armor!
I really like the SS 2011 capsule collection by Giovanni Grillotti!
Especially because he dreamed of a woman …as a real woman!
